Liverpool are set to complete the signing of Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah from FC Basel of Switzerland. The player has been on the radar of Liverpool scouts for some time, and impressed in the Champions league against Chelsea sufficiently that Anfield officials have been convinced to move in on the player dubbed ‘The Egyptian Messi‘ early in the January transfer window. The fee has not yet been finalised, but the figure is likely to be in the region of £8m, with some additional fees. Rumoured late interest in Salah from Newcastle United may have the potential to complicate negotiations, but the player is set on a move to the North West and is already seeking temporary accommodation in the area.
